Why is Mars Important?
The physical world is 99.99% empty space and is constantly moving. The world is simply electrical fields and magnetic poles and how they all interplay with each other. Mars is the energy used to master this interplay between electricity and magnetism.
Mars is our engagement in this physical world, the bringer of spiritual energy to the planet. Mars represents our muscles, the phallus and testicles in medical astrology. Your creative attributes ultimately. What can you manifest = Mars. Mars is our stability, survival, and ultimate grounding of spiritual energy. It works in 3 ways. It controls our chastity and freedom, wisdom and innocence, our ability to acquire and release. The difference between a prostitute and a nun, both require effort and a mind outside of society, ultimately a search for a deeper truth.
